tools of the trade

in hollow bones
you won't find dried blood
I cleaned all
with wire
I have tools
I'm not a chicken
nor am I an egg

who cares what I am
as long as I clean blood

Almost a post apocalyptic feel to this one. Thanks for playing along with my Sunday 160.

Yes. Not a chicken.

Wow, very dark - or is it? I had a friend that cleaned animals for food supply and she could have written this.

Nicely done!

Jenny said...

This kinda/sorta creeped me out and I'm not exactly sure why.

The imagery is dark and compelling... I feel like I want to know more.

Amazing use of a difficult prompt.

This was interesting -- I could say it was suggesting a macabre curious twist. Or it simply does not matter what "others think"
